We’ve all experienced it. It’s a new year, and we create personal resolutions. Then we give up by February. Why does this take place?

1. Write Down Fitness Goals, Not Resolutions

Resolutions are a steadfast plan to do or not do a behavior. On account of this, they’re absolute and may be intimidating.

Goals are a target of your ambition, an aspiration or a desired outcome. They sound less dreadful—and more feasible.

Imagine you come into 2020 with the outlook of creating reachable goals, as opposed to making unattainable resolutions? Reevaluating your thought process and being more forgiving to yourself is the first step toward development.

2. Create SMART Fitness Goals

Your goals for 2020 might incorporate:

  • Professional—receiving a promotion at your job.
  • Health—beginning a strength training routine.
  • Personal—reading additional books.

Now that you’ve created your goals, how do you stay committed to accomplishing them?

SMART goals motivate you to meet targets and acknowledge achievements during the process.

How Do You Come Up With a SMART Goal?

SMART signifies specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-based. They’re clear but not overwhelming.

Personal SMART goals could be:

  1. Read for 20 minutes before you go to sleep nightly this week.
  2. Consume veggies at every meal this week.
  3. Take a walk after your evening meal each day this week.

Setting SMART goals will stop you from being overpowered by what you want to attain.

3. Share Your Fitness Goals with a Loved One

Don’t forget to tell someone about your goals! Using an accountability partner can aid you in keeping motivated during the process.
